Product Description

These double bells are hand-forged by the best Ewe blacksmiths and are played in mostly all of their traditional music. The Gankogui is created from iron that is heated to blistering temperature, hammered and shaped to the proper size and set back in the fire for tempering. Its clear and cutting tone demonstrates why it has been the center of so much traditional African music. Each bell has several pitches depending upon how you strike them. Stick included, and we sell additional sticks in the ‘Drum Accessories’ page. You can even create an echo effect by striking the larger bell and bouncing it off your leg. These are a great addition to any drumming circle or band.
